we are pleased to welcome pro fmx rider, destin cantrell as well as pro bmx rider, mike spinner. at only 20 years of age, destin has been riding freestyle motocross profressionally since he was 15. he is a focused athlete with swagger that the cameras love.
mike spinner burst into the bmx scene in 2006 and has performed tricks never done before- the 1080, 720 tailwhip and quad whip. he is definitely a media favorite, appearing on the jimmy fallen show, cbs morning show, as well as a national nike commercial.
